Carine Roitfeld stuck to using “real people” (as opposed to models) for her guest-edited issue of Vman, due out February 14. The exception: the bonus pinup girl calendar, shot by Willy Vandeperre, featuring “supermodels and Victoria’s Secret Angels, 12 of the planet’s most celebrated creatures.” Roitfeld dressed the girls, including Joan Smalls, Miranda Kerr, Adriana Lima, and Karolina Kurkova, in an assortment of Victoria’s Secret lingerie and customized pink American Apparel jackets. Style.com has the exclusive first look at the full calendar. Here, a few of our favorite months.
The runway at Givenchy’s menswear show is rarely a boys-only affair. Riccardo Tisci’s show today was no different—underneath those crystal septum nose rings, we spotted Joan Smalls, Lakshmi Menon, and Ana Claudia Michels strutting top-and-skirt versions of the men’s outfits.
Karlie Kloss Makes A Tumblr, J.W. Anderson Debuts His Aldo Collaboration, Balenciaga’s Patti Smith-Inspired Campaign, And More
Model-of-the-moment Karlie Kloss was inspired by her friend Coca Rocha to start a Tumblr, called Kloss Gloss, which she launched this week. She has posted her latest editorials and a behind-the-scenes video from her Numéro shoot with Greg Kadel. [Kloss Gloss]
J.W. Anderson celebrated his collaboration with Aldo at Selfridges last night in London. The designer, along with Christian Cota and Mark Fast, was selected to work with the brand as part of the Aldo Rise initiative. [Vogue U.K.]
Patti Smith’s gritty photos in her book Just Kids served as the inspiration behind Balenciaga’s new Spring campaign. The Steven Meisel-lensed images, starring Laura Kampman, Juliane Grüner, Rosie Tapner, and Kirstin Liljegren, are shot in a torn-up bedroom much like the one in the iconic image of Smith and Sam Shepard.

Karl Lagerfeld’s gymnastics-themed campaign came out last month. Now Chanel has released a video that gives a behind-the-scenes glimpse of the shoot with Joan Smalls and Saskia de Braw. [Telegraph]
The Golden Globe and SAG nominations have been announced, and now, in the spirit of awards season, Modelinia has handed out a few honors of its own to this year’s hottest catwalkers. For its first-ever Style Awards, Modelinia judged models in five categories: Hottest Red Look, Biggest Risk Taker, Best Red Carpet Glam, Best Accessorizer, and Best Model Off-Duty. Model-of-the-moment Karlie Kloss came out on top in the red dress category, beating industry veterans like Gisele Bündchen and Miranda Kerr, for the Jason Wu gown she wore to this year’s CFDA Awards. (Though Kloss’ dress was definitely the biggest standout in the group, it seems like Natalia Vodianova should have at least made the list for the dramatic Valentino dress she wore to her annual Love Ball). In the off-runway category, Joan Smalls beat Kate Moss, which didn’t surprise us: We’re still gushing over Smalls’ denim-on-denim at the Spring shows. But we are curious why some of our favorites, Frida Gustavsson and Caroline Brasch Nielsen, were left off that list altogether. See who made the cut, below. And check Style File next Thursday for our favorite model-off-duty looks of the year.
